History

Woodstock was chartered on July 10, 1761 by Gov. Benning Wentworth and was a NH grant to David Page and the others. The name was designated after Woodstock located in Oxfordshire (England) and as a respect to the 4th duke of Marlborough, George Spencer, as well as to his property, the Blenheim Palace. The early settler, James Sanderson and family, arrived in 1768. Major Joab Hoisington constructed a gristmill and later on a sawmill in 1776 on the Ottauquechee River’s south branch.

While the Revolution slowed down the settlement, the town quickly developed in 1783 when the war came to an end. In 1807, the Vermont General Assembly had a meeting here prior to transferring the following year to Montpelier’s new capital. Ottauquechee River’s waterfalls gave water power in order to run the mills, and factories manufactured axes and scythes, woolens and carding machines. Likewise, there was a gunsmith and machine shop. Blinds, wooden wares, furniture, and window sashes were manufactured, as well as saddles, leather goods, horse harnesses, carriages, and luggage trunks. The population has then increased to 3,041 by 1859. On September 29, 1875, Woodstock Railroad was opened to White River Junction, bringing tourists and freight. Woodstock Inn was opened in the year 1892.

Woodstock flourished with the help of the Industrial Revolution, and its economy at present is mostly driven by tourism. The central square of the town, Green, is surrounded by Greek revival and the renovated late Federal, Georgian-style homes. Real estate prices in the area next to Green are one of the highest in Vermont.
